Commercial litigation is a broad category of litigation that encompasses all types of business disputes. Commercial disputes often arise within the context of commerce and can be among businesses as well as individuals.

In addition to our experience with intellectual property (IP), we have also represented plaintiffs and defendants in commercial litigation cases throughout the United States. We handle commercial business disputes, small and large, in federal and state trial courts.

Commercial Business Litigation

Commercial litigation can have long-term effects on the company and individuals within the company. The company may want to resolve the matter quickly rather than going through a prolonged litigation. Depending on the particular facts of the case, it may be possible to resolve the litigation before trial, whether through summary judgment, or through mediation or other alternative dispute resolution methods.

Business Litigation by Business People

Commercial business litigation is best handled by attorneys who have the business experience and knowledge about the business’ particular industry. It is important that the focus remains on the company’s objectives, and that those objectives are incorporated into the case strategy. Commercial litigation can include breach of contract, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, ownership and shareholder oppression, and tortious interference with contractual relations, among other types of claims.

As an IP and business litigation law firm, our commercial litigation lawyers can assist with advising on commercial litigation legal issues. See our IP and Business Litigation service line page for additional information about commercial litigation legal services.
